Sternwheeler Cruise – October 2006

Monday, November 27th, 2006

In October, we took a cruise on a sternwheeler based out of Cascade Locks on the Columbia River.

The Columbia River – she’s a beaut…

Right here in K.C.’s own back yard.

Just above Bonneville Dam.

The paddlewheel on our sternwheeler…

Tugboats on the river are common sights.

Camping at Maryhill Campground – September 25, 2006

Sunday, September 24th, 2006

We are camping this weekend at Maryhill Campground in the Columbia Gorge in Washington.  Bob and I agree that this is one of the nicest parks we have stayed in – and it’s only 30 miles from home in Lyle!

Here’s the view from the “front yard.”

It’s a beautiful park.

 Bob, K.C., the Columbia River, the Maryhill Bridge and Mt. Hood in the distance just over K.C.’s right shoulder…

Here’s a better view of Mt. Hood…

The river rock here has beautiful designs….



Yakima Motor Speedway – September 2006

Sunday, September 24th, 2006

We went to the races in Yakima a couple of weeks ago and will be going back there for the Fall Classic this next weekend.  Our pictures of the late models at this race didn’t turn out well so we’ll get some more this next weekend.  That’ll be three days of no holds bar racing.

 Yakima Motor Speedway – the fastest half-mile oval west of the Mississippi!!  😉

OOps, a wreck!!
